2005 Buick Rainier Problems
On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original "in service" date of the vehicle. Please contact your local GM dealer for more information.

Bought this car 3 mos. ago because my last vehicle developed problems that no one seemed able to fix. HA! I should have saved myself the anguish and the repair bills. First there were the shocks and the swaybar bushings, then the headlights were misaligned (far too low, but the dealership said they were fine), then one of the taillights went out, then one of the turn signals, and now one of the...
I bought this vehicle in 2007 with 17,000 miles on it for half the original sticker. I remember the salesman telling me when I asked him why the big depreciation "this is the best SUV no one has ever heard of". And I would agree. I now have 83,000 hard miles and have had to fix a few things, rear air suspension failed at 80,000 miles, and I am now replacing front wheel bearings. I fiqure that a...
